Drummers asked to join The Beatles before they asked Ringo
« on: June 12, 2012, 04:01:51 PM »


1. Bobby Graham

Graham turned down the offer saying

"I said 'why would want to join a band in Liverpool that nobody's ever heard of'?"

Graham already had a record deal at the time so when he says nobody ever heard of The Beatles, he means nobody outside of Liverpool, NOT in Liverpool itself.


That's one.

"Brian asked me to join the Beatles and I said, I wouldn’t join the Beatles for a gold clock. There’s only one group as far as I’m concerned and that’s the Big Three. The Beatles can’t make a better sound than that, and Pete Best is a very good friend of mine. I couldn’t do the dirty on him".


That's two.

Hutch, I knew about. Graham is new to me. I wonder if the Beatles hesitated to ask Ringo because he was so well-established with the Hurricanes.
